Getting to the National Memorial Arboretum

The Arboretum is situated in the centre of England on Croxall Road, Alrewas in Staffordshire. It is easy to reach from any part of the country and is close to all the Midlands motorways.


Parking is available for cars, coaches and motorcycles, subject to availability, on a car park adjacent to the Remembrance Centre. A second car park located along Croxall Road, past the entrance to the Arboretum site, is also available. Please follow the instruction of our signage and parking marshals, where applicable, who will advise you where to park. A number of wider blue badge and family spaces are located close to the Remembrance Centre. A drop-off/pick-up area is located next to the entrance of our Remembrance Centre.

Visitors arriving by car should be aware that a parking charge of £3.00 (coins) per day applies (pay and display). This also applies to blue badge holders. There is no charge for coaches or motorcycles.

Special parking arrangements may apply on event days.

Coach Operators should always book their arrival times with the Arboretum on 01283 245 143.

Please note: all monies from parking fees are given directly to the charity and help to ensure the National Memorial Arboretum remains a free entry site.
